And you can assume my symptoms are much worse.
Unfortunately in the cases I heard of it even happened with anticoagulants, but regular doppler controls after stent placement should provide indication whether anticoagulant intake is necessary for a longer period or not (and what type of anticoagulants to move on with if necessary). Think a good follow-up after stent placement is really recommended. In which intervals should be checked with the doctors experience.spiff1970 wrote:Let me ask you another question then... For those who had thrombosis, were you prescribed with anticoagulants after the first intervention (when the stent was placed)? Or does thrombosis occur even when you're on anticoagulants?
